Sometimes it may happen that after you remove a program from your computer, you are not able to access the CD drive successfully. At other times the drive does not appear, or you may receive an error message when trying to access the drive. There are two basic ways of how to fix CD drive in Windows registry. One method requires that you manually modify your Windows registry to get rid of the UpperFilters registry entry as well as the LowerFilters registry entry.

It is recommended that before you start to delete the registry entries, you first uninstall all CD recording or writing programs. After the problem is resolved, you can reinstall any programs that you want. If you modify the registry incorrectly by using the Registry Editor or by using some other method, serious problems may occur. Sometimes it may happen that you will have to reinstall the operating system. First, you must log on to Windows. Then you should follow these steps in order to fix this problem:

1. Start the Registry Editor – First click start, then run, then regedit and then click OK. The Registry Editor will then start.

2. You are going to want to delete the UpperFilters registry entry. In the Registry Editor, you want to expand My Computer, and then you want to expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

In the topic area, you want to click UpperFilters. Click Delete on the Edit menu.

3. The LowerFilters registry entry must be deleted.
